Over the past year I've given the original Guitar Hero some serious well deserved props. I had a chance to play the original before it hit store shelves and once I picked up that guitar I knew I was hooked. I bought more guitar hero bundles as gifts for friends and family then any other game in history. Over the past year I also became friends with John Tam. The executive producer for the game who just happens to be one of the most modest guys in the industry. With Guitar Hero II preparing to hit store shelves in early November I knew it was time to make him a visit. So I packed my Panasonic DVX100 hopped on a plane and made my first official visit to Red Octane. Audience meet John, John Audience. And let me introduce you to Guitar Hero II.
